Suffolk County, NY - July 17 - Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker announces the Senior Advocates summer schedule. Senior Advocates will be visiting various locations across the county throughout July, August, and September to educate seniors on benefits they may be eligible for and assist them in applying for those benefits.

“Many seniors and their loved ones go unaware of the benefits and resources available to them at the county, state, and federal level,” says Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker. “Senior Advocates from the Suffolk County Office for the Aging provide essential information on how seniors in our community can maintain their personal independence and receive the care they need.”

Legislator Anker encourages senior residents to attend one of the scheduled Senior Advocates meetings to receive free benefits counseling. A list of meetings within the sixth legislative district (Mount Sinai, Miller Place, Sound Beach, Rocky Point, Shoreham, Wading River, Ridge, Middle Island, and Coram) can be found below:
